If you're out of yeast you land here. My first batch was terrible, and heres why: While stirring the dry ingredients into the wet, I never got a dough that would pull away from the bowl, so I kept adding flour. Even while kneading it, I had to add flour. My dough got tough and the baking powder rise ended way too early. Dinner was a dry dog biscuit. On the next attempt,thanks to others comments esp. the daily gourmet, I got the dough into the oven right away without trying to make a dough ball or kneading. Just stir it, dump it, spread it, and bake it. It's very craggy but its great. Very crispy on the outside, very soft inside. I like basil dipping olive oil for the oil in the wet ingredients for flavor. There will be no slicing this bread, just break it off and eat it- in 1/2 hour. Dare me to stir in some crumbled sausage ? Thank you Julia, I've been wanting to make something good for years. In the end, we experimented, then we ate it, and now we'll release our dangerous selves on the world. (I wonder if my hard well water was the problem with the first batch ?)
